Gartner Recognizes Orient Technologies in 2015 Magic Quadrant for Operational Database Management Systems

Placement based on completeness of vision and ability to execute

London, UK (Oct 16, 2015) — Orient Technologies, the company behind OrientDB (, today announced that it has been included by Gartner in their 2015 Magic Quadrant for Operational Databases*.

Gartner defines the operational DBMS market by relational and non-relational database management products that are suitable for a broad range of enterprise-level, transactional applications. The report also highlights as a strategic planning assumption that by 2017, all leading operational DBMSs will offer multiple data models, relational and NoSQL, in a single DBMS platform.  This is a vision pioneered by OrientDB since 2010.

“The Magic Quadrant serves as a trusted resource for companies as they look for operational databases and 31 vendors have been evaluated. OrientDB pioneered the multi-model approach in 2010 and we believe being recognized by the world’s leading industry analyst validates our vision,” said Luca Olivari, President of Orient Technologies.

Orient Technologies is the only NoSQL company that has been funded exclusively by its own customers**. Research and Development activities are sponsored by clients and supported by an active user community. With relentless focus on building the operational database for tomorrow’s enterprises, OrientDB continues to grow and deliver on the multimodel vision that’s changing the database landscape forever.
